LOUISBURG - The northbound lanes of U.S. Highway 69 south of Louisburg have reopened after being closed this morning for an overturned tractor-trailer.
The Miami County Sheriff's Office reported about 1:10 p.m. Thursday, May 27, that the northbound lanes, which had been closed between 311th Street and Kansas Highway 68 at Louisburg, were back open. Traffic was diverted to Metcalf Road while the Kansas Highway Patrol worked the crash, the sheriff's office reported.
No injuries were reported from the accident.
The sheriff's office reported it had been working several accidents Thursday morning as thunderstorms produced torrential rains across the county, causing slippery driving conditions and flash flooding in some low-lying areas.
